cleared their schedule for debate rehearsals. the president's practicing right now at nevada. mitt romney's resuming his practice sessions after a welcoming rally tonight in denver. both sides downplaying expectations. but cnn's chief political correspondent candy crowley who's moderating, by the way, the second presidential debate, noticed one high-profile exception. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. s.o.p. for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy, like this -- >> president obama's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy, like this -- >> we've expected all along that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in history, showing himself to be a very good debater. >> reporter: since you are supporting romney, you are supporting him, right? then you also need to lower the stakes for wednesday's first of t
to happen in this presidential election right now. mitt romney needs to draw the contrast. i think that mitt romney needs to say something along the line, when i was saving the olympics after 9-11, where was barak obama? who do you want? make the decision. this is a country in crisis once again. economic security, energy security, national security. so draw the contrast. i think that's what we tried to do in this ad. >> steve: larry sabato said that ad that you're running now is the most devastating contrast ad he's ever seen before. >> my team will be very happy to have that. now i got to give a trophy or something, i guess. >> eric: colonel, we have to read this statement. this is from mr. murphy, his campaign. he said, quote, allen west is shamelessly attacking him for a mistake he made as a teen-ager, which he had discussed at length in the media as a mistake learned from. >> first of all, no one down in south florida knew about this and had not been discussed. i think it's represencible that they should talk about a contrast when they started off running ads with me stealing money from
the country right now, do you that damages mitt romney? it's getting a lot of play nationwide. it really is. you can't take that away. do you think that's damaging? >> people are entitled to their opinion. this is a free country. it's free speech. i personally accept the numbers as they are. we need to be talking about the issues. the facts, there are still over 20 million people out of work. gas has doubled under this president. >> okay. scott, let's move on to you. florida's unemployment rate stands at 8.8%, one point higher than the national average that came out yesterday. florida also tops the list of states. and some type of foreclosure process, 11%. has president obama done enough to bring back florida's economy? >> well, what we're seeing here in florida is that people do feel better. they feel like we are in a recovery. things are on the move. we are moving forward. and that's really the great thing. what people are asking themselves is that four years ago in september of 2008, this country lost over 150,000 jobs. in september of 2012, we gained 114,000 jobs. that's the great news.
since august." now, they're right debates are about moments but ain an amusin image. mitt romney sitting in a room peppering them with zingers. i would like to be on the wall hearing that. >> not about zingers, serious substantive policy. and in "the washington post" showing a virtual dead heat with the president and mitt romney. obama with a slight edge. 49-47%. but also in this survey, it delves down into the expectations game for this debate. what can you tell me about those numbers, peter? >> reporter: despite what chris christie said, and that is sort of another mixed message coming out of the romney campaign, romney is winning the expectations game if you look at the polls. more likely to win the debate, president obama 55%. mitt romney just 31% of likely voters expect him to win the debate. that's a good place to be for him going in there, but like you said, there's a lot of stuff in this poll. sort of mirrors what we've seen in a lot of recent national and state polls. president obama has advantages on a range of issues, however, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interes
never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course, we know that you'll be tuned in right here to current tv tv for all of our pre and post-debate coverage. 83% of respondents to a new abc news poll said they're interested in the debates as well. so you're in good company. the supreme court starts a new session today. it plans to take up at least three big issues. it will focus on gay marriage, voting rights on affirmative action. fist stop will be affirmative action. opening arguments october 10th has to do with a city in texas and whether it will continue to use racial preferential as a factor in admissions. we're back with more steph after the break. presents coverage of the presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >>now that's politically direct. [
accurate. i have been saying to all of you that governor romney has embraced the right and a budget. he has. -- ryan budget. he has. it is mainly getting the facts ready on the key issues. thank you. >> vice president joe biden was in iowa earlier today. his debate with paul ryan is about one week away. we will have that live for you on c-span. we're taking your reaction this morning from mitt romney and norfolfishersville, virginia. >> i like that he supports americans being able to own firearms. >> our next caller is on the democrats lined. caller: hello. i am a conservative democrat, a reagan democrat. people need to wake up. you have someone here who is running for president of the united states who will bring honesty and courage back to the united states. the president has been in office for almost four years. he has devastated this country. he has put us into some much debt that it will take a stand presidents to get as out of this mess. every time joe biden opens his mouth, he puts his foot into it. >> last time around, did you vote for john mccain? >> yes. i vote for the man and not
a little here. >> go right ahead. [laughter] >> a day or two before governor romney made his decision about his running mate, i was talking to another pollster. runs the democracy corps. they have been trying to use the ryan plan to beat republican members of congress over the head. like you said, nobody knew who paul ryan was. as we were getting off the phone, i said, i will give you this. i do not think governor romney is going to pick paul ryan. but if he does, we will have another conversation. it strikes me that democrats have not effectively made medicare and the rhine plan -- the ryan plan, i have seen the polling and how it moves people. i have not seen them in flicked a lot of bodily damage on republicans on the ryan plan, on medicare, so far. am i missing something? has it had a meaningful effect or not? >> the quick answer would be, we will find out in 33 days. >> apparently, we are going to find out in 33 days. [laughter] the first observation i make is that there is this presumption in the press, boy, paul ryan, what a risky mistake he was. test polls show that paul ryan genera
his path forward is the right one. now romney has struggled to get his message across. there's a new politico poll out that has his personal unfavorability rating at 48% compared to the president's 47%. he has to appeal to all those undecided voters who don't like the president. campaign sources acknowledge that will be a tricky balancing act as he hits the president, he has to be wary of sounding too negative. charlie and norah? >> the president's hope for re-election, he is preparing for the debate in henderson, nevada, outside las vegas. and he made a surprise visit monday to a local campaign office and also called several volunteers on the phone to say thank you for helping his re-election effort. >> everything you do ends up making a huge difference in us being able to win nevada and win the election. so, just keep it up. >> nancy cordes is in henderson, covering the obama campaign. good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning. while the president does his homework, the obama campaign team is working hard itself to trying to lower expectations for the president's performance.
specifically, how important is the first debate? >> each of these debates is an opportunity for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almost every swing state thement opened up a significant lead outside the margin of error in most cases. if tea lex were to be held today, it would be a shock if mitt romney were to win. he has to find a way to shake up that narrative. >> one of the things we've seen in the polls is older voters moving more in the direction towards president obama, and one of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan sever
right. but i don't know how, and so romney's got to have enough confidence in his intellectual acumen to get in there, but if he comes in with all this rehearsed stuff, he's just going to come across as a samb by. >> how do you feel about what the polls say right now? do you think romney is truly behind, or is that closer race than some would have us believe? >> i think romney is running a little bit behind but if he does well on wednesday night he's going to close the gap. look, romney has to look ahead. people know how they feel now. he can't say the president did this, that or the other thing. he has to say this is what i can do for you and make your life better. if he can do that, all right, and put the president on the defensive a few times, he'll gain. >> last thing on this, what do you think of the expectations game going on where each candidate is trying to outdo each other by complimenting each other's debating prowess? is this absurd or does it matter? >> like a football game, those people, play it down, tamp it down. it's all a game. you know that. >> let's talk about the b
in henderson, nevada tonight, he'll see none other than his opponent's wife, ann romney, who is hosting a rally there tonight. >> all right. peter alexander in boston. thank you, peter. >>> a deadly shooting at a vfw post in central florida has left two people dead, and another person injured. police say the shooting broke out as riders from a charity motorcycle event were eating breakfast. the incident is under investigation. >>> let's head to wall street. mandy drury is in the new york stokes for us. what are with you watching this week? >> we closed out a surprisingly good third quarter for the stock markets, natalie, the best since 2010. there is some caution now that we might be ready for a pullback in the market, especially if there is renewed weakness on the economic front, not just here, but globally, as well. as for gasoline, it's a new week and we're sitting for the national average at $3.78 a gallon right now. two cents lower than a week ago, four cents lower than a month ago. we wish it would go quicker to the down side. >> mandy drury at the new york stokes changes. >>> major rulin
speaker. but romney said if they both do well, he's going to convince more people that his path forward is the right one. of course, he has struggled to get his message across. a new political poll out yesterday has his personal unfavorability rating just above the president at 48% compared to the president's 47%. so in this debate, romney's got to wrestle that message back from the president, appeal to those undecided voters who don't like obama, and campaign sources acknowledge that's going to be a tricky balancing act. he's got to hit the president but he's got to be wary of sounding too negative. >> thank you. president obama is preparing in henderson, nevada, just outside las vegas. he made a surprise visit monday to a local campaign office and called several volunteers on the phone. he told one supporter the debate practice is fun, but also tedious. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. [ laughter ] they're making me do my homework. >> nancy cordis is covering obama. good morning. >> reporter: as the president does his homework here, his campaign has b
and the business shooting recently. both the president and romney support it. >> i believe in the second amendment. i believe in people's lawful right to bear arms. >> i will protect the second amendment rights of the american people. >> reporter: both sides stick to the constitution with president obama fighting criticism from any national rifle association. >> i won't take your shotgun away, i won't take your rifle away, i won't take your hyunan away. >> the fact he hasn't tried won't placate them. >> all that first term lip service to gun owners is just part of a massive obama conspiracy to deceive voters and hide his true intentions to destroy the second amendment during his second term. >> reporter: romney has been actively cultivating the nra, a switch on the once tough on guns governor. consider the assault weapons ban. president obama is a yes but with an asterisk. mr. romney moves from a yes to a no. here's why. in 2004, governor romney signed a permanent assault weapons ban in massachusetts and now candidate romney says he any new laws. >> we need a president to enforce current laws that
the facade of being a politician. all right. the president really basically just has to maintain his cool demeanor. they're both not going to say anything startling, you heard it all before if you pay attention. but it's the way that romney presents himself. it's like ronald reagan against jimmy carter. reagan was behind in the -- when he started to debate carter but he made carter almost look small. reagan was larger than life, he came across as authoritative yet accessible. if i were romney i'd be watching those reagan tapes. >> the word on the street is he has been doing a ton of preparation but also looking for zingers. things to kind of one-liners to nail the president with. do you think that's a good idea? >> look, i'm doing a debate with john stewart on saturday in washington and i'm sure stewart's going to have zingers all over the place. you come in with zingers you sound stupid. they have to just occur to you. so if stewart says something dumb which is almost a given i'm going to pop him. all right. but i don't know how. and so romney's got to have enough confidence in his intel
for romney to try to shake up the race. if you look at the polling in pretty much every swing state right now, there are a couple of exceptions, missouri being one of them. almost every swing state thement opened up a significant lead outside the margin of error in most cases. if tea lex were to be held today, it would be a shock if mitt romney were to win. he has to find a way to shake up that narrative. >> one of the things we've seen in the polls is older voters moving more in the direction towards president obama, and one of the key issues in this campaign has been medicare which has really been brought to light since mitt romney brought on paul ryan as his running mate. do you think retrospectively that could actually cost him? >> i think this is more about mitt romney than it is about paul ryan. it's always more about the principal than it is about the vice presidential candidate. that being said, when you talk to trks over the last few years, ever since paul ryan unveiled his medicare plan several years ago, what they've said is we hope we can play even on medicare and this is in congr
wonder about the timing. when is the right time, if ever, to tell the details. >>> anyway, this morning and president obama and mitt romney are focusing on the first of three defb bates that will focus on political issues. a poll shows romney has a 4% advantage with independent voters while a "washington post"-abc news poll shows most registered voters expects president obama will win the debate. >>> passengers on an american airlines jet had a rough ride over the weekend. a boston to miami flight was diverted after a row of seats became unbolted from the floor. witnesses say the seats were sliding around like a carnival ride. there was a concern the seats could have gone airborne within the cabin. the plane landed safely at jfk airport. >> wouldn't have wanted to be on that flight. >>> dairy farmers say milk can get a lot more expensive if congress doesn't pass a new farm bill. the old farm bill expired on sunday. new york senator chuck schumer says without a new bill, the they'll have to pay higher. producers say prices could go higher than $6.00 a gallon. >>> it isn't just the price
story. i get it. it affects many, many people and i wonder about the timg and when is the right time if ever to tell the details? anyway. this morning president obama and governor mitt romney are preparing for wednesday's debate in denver. their first of three debates will focus on domestic issues. a george wraesh poll release this morning shows romney as a four percentage advantage with voters while an nbc poll will show president obama will win the debate. >> a rough ride over the weekend on a jet. it was diverted after a row of passenger seats became unfwroltd the floor. the crew was alerted after takeoff. there was a concern the seats could have gone air borne within the cabin. the plane finally landed safely at new york's jfk airport. >> never seen that before. >> no. >> dairy farmers say that milk could get a lot more expensive if congress doesn't pass a new farm bill. the old farm bill expired on sunday. new york senator chuck schumer said without a new bill the government will have to pay higher than market prices for dairy products. and the national milk producer federation
to the debates, as your husband went through 3 or 400 i think during the primary, something like that, right? >> i was at all of them. >> how do you handicap this one? >> well, i think governor romney needs to do very well. this is a very close race. and i think he needs to make the choice obvious to americans. he needs to tell us what he's going to do to create more jobs and create economic recovery. this is a very important evening for him. >> is his back against the wall? is there a sense he's behind and this is sort of his last moment? >> i think he's got a lot of support throughout the country and very good debater and i anticipate he'll do very well. and if he is as assertive and direct as he was with newt in florida, he'll be just fine. >> probably good advice. again, the book is called "land of the pilgrim's pride." callista gingrich, thank you very much. >>> andim could go coming up next, what is your mommy iq? a quiz from rosie cope. but first, this is "today" on nbc.
